The weather is getting warmer. The school year is winding down. That can mean only one thing… it’s time for another Sharknado!!! And Syfy will not disappoint, releasing the fourth installment in its laughably bad, but epically awesome series appropriately titled “The 4th Awakens.” Directed once again by Anthony C. Ferrante, the usual suspects return led by Ian Ziering as Fin Shepard. After Los Angeles, New York, and Orlando, where else would a Sharknado hit… well the desert of course… it’s viva Las Vegas for the CG sharks!
Check out the teaser for Sharknado: The 4th Awakens below.
That’s right, folks, after Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! premiered last night (read our review right here), and at the end of the movie-ish mish-mash of moving imagery it was revealed that Sharknado 4 is indeed on the way. You’re not at all shocked, are you? I can feel it. I can feel your lack of shock radiating from my computer screen right now, long before this is fully written and any other human eyes read it. But hey, when one of these wacky, nonsensical carnival freak show productions Syfy and The Asylum are known for catches on as big as the Sharknado movies have, they’re going to make as many of them as they possibly can.
The announcement came with a bit of a twist, as well. At the end of Sharknado 3 (spoiler alert…I guess), some space shuttle wreckage is heading right for April Wexler (played by Tara Reid) before it cuts to black. This is where the fans come in, as they’ll use the hashtags #AprilLives or #AprilDies to decided whether the character will survive in Sharknado 4.
The cast and crew talked about the ending, including Reid and co-star Ian Ziering. You can see what they had to say below.
